The Perfect Product, for the Perfect Lip: Butter London Lip Crayons + A GIVEAWAY! - MyStyleSpot


MyStyleSpot

One of my favorite beauty trends that is going strong this summer, is the bright bold lip. In truth, I’ve always been a bit afraid of the daring lip, minus my teenage years where I wore either a lavender lipstick or a silver lipstick. Yeah true story! I have no idea what I was thinking, …

World Famous Crochet Museum, Joshua Tree

by zoe @ Zoe London

Photography: George J Rockett / Edit: Zoe London Have you ever seen anything as glorious? Joshua Tree is a wonderful place for many reasons. It’s a little slice of secluded heaven away from the major cities nearby. It’s air is clean, the desert for miles is beautiful, and almost every time you go you’ll leave a better person. I take a spiritual journey within myself every time and come back happier. I’m not wearing any makeup in these pics, and out in Joshua Tree it’s more common to not wear makeup, not brush your hair, not worry about yourself for just one minute, than anywhere else i’ve ever seen. I love it, and i’d go back every time. There’s also a wealth of local art, from pop up galleries to outdoor sculptures and conceptual pieces right in the middle of the desert. One that was on my hit list however, was the ‘World Famous Crochet Museum.’ Let me take you there, and relive the story of how it came to be. It’s an old California Photo Mat, with a brand new meaning. Owner Shari Elf, who probably has the best name ever, purchased this old photo-mat without a clue in the world what to do with it. Coincidentally, she’s a lady with a penchant for collecting crochet, and when one thing led to another, her entire personal crochet collection (she states that none of it was made by herself, however!) made it’s way out of storage and into the shelves she built into the photo-mat, and then moved permanently to Joshua Tree. It’s kinda stayed that way ever since, and the crochet collection has expanded into what you see today. That’s kinda all there is to the story, however, it’s a most curious story, and one I absolutely had to see for myself in person. Art Queen. The World Famous Crochet Museum lies upon the Twentynine Palms highway, as part of a larger art installation called Art Queen. Art Queen is home to ever changing art pieces, from artists all over the world, run not for profit. Shari co owns Art Queen with fellow artist Randy Polumbo, who fell in love with not only the desert on visits from NYC, but Shari, too. Art Queen is the most peaceful, welcoming and exciting art installation i’d seen myself in ages, and you can stroll around peacefully the only people there for a good hour. Shari and Randy believe in a fun and inclusive atmosphere, celebrating thoughtful, inspiring and accessible work. I love the nature and the feel of the place, and you do immediately feel at home, even if home is surrounded by crochet as far as the eye can see. I think sometimes art can be viewed as something not for all. One of the things I think people presume and sometimes perhaps jump to conclusions about – particularly perhaps the younger generations – is that art isn’t always made with a view for all. I get that perhaps sometimes it isn’t, and not all art is affordable. But one of the wondrous things about Joshua Tree is the art is so pure and without sounding weird – normal. It’s as simple as a photo mat full of crochet. No, really. It sounds like the most ridiculous thing, but it evokes so much within you. Just even the thought of being around so much colour in one room, fills your entire heart with happiness. Both George and I opened the door to the photo mat and grinned like cheshire cats. It’s infectiously happy. Crochet also reminds me of my nan, and of times gone by. It’s perceived often as something of a bygone era, not something our generation does or is exposed to every day. To see little crochet cakes, and rabbits, and a vast collection of poodles – Shari’s favourites – is so joyful and childlike, to see the entire world around us reborn in crochet form, is such a cool little wonder. It definitely is something everyone can enjoy. George thinks i’m batshit at the best of times, my curiosity getting the better of me, leading me down paths towards photo mats filled with crochet, and when I told him that was on the agenda for the day I definitely got an odd look. But trust me, even George was smiling and admiring all the crochet.   Okay so the name is a little tongue in cheek. I think it’s hilarious. The ‘World Famous’ crochet museum no-ones ever heard of. I love it. It might be a little joke but if you’re ever in Los Angeles, or California in general, with a little road trip craving (it’s roughly 2 hours away from LA) – I can’t recommend the drive out to the desert to experience all it’s wonderful kooky stuff – including the World Famous Crochet Museum – enough. As well as the rest of the Art Queen gallery around the Crochet Museum, Shari has a little shop just next to it filled with cute trinkets, some clothing and some other bits and bobs, with a pay-what-you-want system. With no people on staff, no key to entrance and no security guards needed, it just about tells you everything you need to know about Joshua Tree. It really is the kind of place where you can leave an unlocked gate to an unlocked photo mat full of crochet open 24/7, and not a dime from the tip jar goes missing. You remember there are wonderful people in the world with hearts just brimming full of love and positivity, and in this current climate it’s one of the freshest breaths of air you’ll ever breathe. You just about want to know just why i’m so in love with the desert? That alone right there is more or less your answer.   I’m probably the most curious person there is. If there’s a wobbly broken brick path leading to nothingness, i’ll follow it. I want to know stories, different walks of life […]

She Is Not Your Competition

by zoe @ Zoe London

Photography: George Rockett / Edit & Words: Zoe London I know you might think she is, but that girl is not your competition. For reason beyond our control, for decades they’ve been trying to get us to pit ourselves against each other. As women, we’re always made to feel like those around us are direct competition to us. But that model on the billboard, the blogger always on the beach on instagram and the colleague that sits at the desk next to you are not your competition, and they never will be. We’re in a bit of a weird time at the moment where we’re riding a wave of faux feminism, which can actually sometimes do more harm than good. Messages being thrown around everywhere telling us girl power and to support your local girl gang are ace, but when they become so commonplace they lose meaning, we lose sight of what it means to not be at competition with each other, and end up back at square one. With that in mind it’s often hard to write sincere words about women and competition against each other without seemingly from the outside appearing to add to the same notion. I’m not really much of a wordsmith but today i’m just going to try and summarise how I feel about this, as bluntly as I can. Because i’m not sure the message is going to get across otherwise. At one point or another, we’ve fallen victim to it. Look, i’m not here to make you feel guilty for pitting other women as competition, because at some point in our lives we’ve all indirectly done it. In the office, it often feels more heightened than ever. I’ve heard stories upon stories of nightmare bosses, who while rising up the ranks themselves, have belittled and caused hell for those below. Why? When failing to see their own achievement more than likely as a result of insecurity makes them believe the colleague below them is a threat to their job, more than likely implemented into their psyche by how male dominated the office can often be, they may lash out at other women viewing them as competition. Instead of focusing on how incredible it is they have risen up the ranks, we’re made to believe that someone else – another female – is always waiting to steal and take away what we have. It’s simply not the case. More so than recently i’ve begun to view this completely differently.  Consider this my resignation letter from the competition. I’m not running at a pace I can’t deal with anymore just to keep up with someone who does have the stamina to go on in the race. We’re all running our own races, our own paths, and we all unfortunately succumb to the same end in life, and we need to detach ourselves from focusing on the other races that are happening around us, and instead become cheerleaders for those ahead of us. Envy really is the thief of joy. There is always going to be another woman you envy. Always. Always, always always. There never wont be. And you’ll look at them and think they have nothing to envy, but in reality they are envious of someone else, too. We can’t switch off that trait. But it’s about viewing and working with that differently, instead of viewing other women as our direct competitors, believing that you can’t do something just because they can and have achieved it, be inspired by them. Shout and rally for them. A lot of incredible women now run their own successful business, in areas we were taught as kids that men dominated. Look at me, I essentially, if you break it down, run an online business. Tech, computers and complex website coding algorithms. An industry dominated by men. But guess what, not only do I do this, but so do hundreds of other women – and instead of believing they are inherently a threat because they’re in the direct same business line, the moment of clarity you feel when you realise that all of these women need the support network of other women, together you can always achieve more. And you will achieve the ultimate goal: happiness. You don’t need to go all guns blazing. Changing your mindset on this doesn’t happen overnight. It’s probably taken me the better part of six months or so to really shake myself out of it, and realise that the women around me really are not my competition. Of course i’m still envious of some things people do, but i’ve shifted my mindset completely from being ‘why isn’t that me’ to ‘wow what an incredible opportunity’, and when you realise that women in your industry doing the things you want to do is actually helpful and not a hinderance, it’s liberating. Of course we all want to be successful, and we all want to achieve the things we desire from life. The reality is that someone else will always be ahead of you on this, and that’s just how it will be. Form support networks with women who also do what you do or go through what you go through, online, WhatsApp, at your local Costa – wherever. Stop viewing those with a ‘seemingly perfect’ life as the crux to your own personal unhappiness, stop viewing the women around you as your direct competition. Reach out to them, engage with them, talk to them. Chances are, they probably feel as lonely and as worried as you do, too. What you may be viewing may actually be a portrait of how you view yourself. I read an interesting theory that when we become envious of other women and we view them as our direct competition, we’re doing so because we see in them a portrait of ourselves. We’re seeing a view of someone who we wish we could be, someone who seems to be like us, but prettier, more successful and more desired. What it really is […]

Monday Musings- Skin, Hair Curling Techniques & Giveaway…

by Trinny @ Trinny London

As many of you might have followed my endless hair journeys , today I will be taking you through my new hair curling routine. Whilst on holiday in Italy I decided to not take so much care with my hair, and the mixture of salt sun and sea gave it that perfect beachy wave. Trying to recreate that in London has always been tricky until I had a lesson at John Frieda.

Introducing Unsigned Artists with Currys PC World

by zoe @ Zoe London

Photography: George J Rockett / Edit: Zoe London THIS POST IS SPONSORED BY CURRYS PC WORLD. Meet the Bose SoundLink Revolve Speaker at Currys PC World and my unsigned Summer picks! I was absolutely stoked when Currys PC World got in touch asking if i’d like to be a part of their latest Summer ad campaign, and now i’m excited for you all to see it as pre-roll YouTube ads and on Facebook! It was so much fun to shoot at my house no less, and I really got to grips with discovering the latest portable speaker by Bose. I’ve featured some speakers on here before, and as you know i’m a DJ as well as avid music lover, so whenever a new music gadget comes into my life – i’m curious. It’s called the Bose SoundLink Revolve, and it’s a portable speaker with loads of great functions. Currys PC World immediately spotted that it was going to be the tech must-have of the Summer, so I bring you some snaps of how it can work at a casual picnic and the full deets! Let’s meet this nifty little gadget! The Bose SoundLink Revolve speaker isn’t much bigger than my hand as you can see, meaning it’s perfect for sticking in your bag or case to take on the go with you. It holds a really impressive battery life of up to 20 hours, meaning you can take it to a festival or picnic/garden party and it’s not gonna die on you. Brill. It’s super easy to use with the buttons on the top controlling the music, which is playing via Bluetooth from your phone or device. You can connect two devices at the same time, meaning you can swap who controls the music! The best thing in my opinion however, is that it’s water resistant, so you can use it by the pool or even by the bathtub for a lazy podcast bath evening. Awesome. Anyway, onto my top unsigned acts for Summer! So I actually recommended three great unsigned acts for the ad and i’d love to share them with you today. Let’s start with beautiful heartfelt pop-rock from the gorge Emma Blackery. You may remember her songs from the past, but they’ve had a revamp for 2017 with the release of her brilliant new EP, Magnetised. It’s beautiful Summer tunes and you’ll love it. Up next is the atmospheric indie soul of Slowlights, a five piece band from London, UK. Their debut EP was released only Friday, and you’ll feel so chilled and transported to a sunny place listening to them. Highly recommend you give them a listen. For something a bit different, check out Normandie, a Swedish rock band with synths in all the right places. I’m absolutely hooked on their latest single, entitled ‘Ghost’, and I think you’ll like it too. So there we go, that’s all the lowdown on the latest music must-have gadget, as well as some new tunes to listen to on it too. Epic! Cheers Curry PC World, this speaker has already made it into my favourite items for the Summer list and George is smitten with it! The sound quality is really incredible.

Glam Glow x Sonic The Hedgehog GravityMud Mask

by zoe @ Zoe London

Photography & Edit: Zoe London Let’s meet this limited edition Glam Glow mask. I love Glam Glow masks. I usually use the YouthMud, which has an interestingly intense burning sensation, but some of the most incredible results. I’ve been so busy lately I haven’t had much time or cabin baggage space to pack a face mask into my routine, so I recently relinquished the chance to try this epic limited edition Glam Glow Gravity Mud* mask, inspired by Sonic The Hedgehog. Gravity Mud promises firming and toning. So the original Gravity Mud is a brilliant chrome white, with a reflective sparkly effect. This limited edition version however, as you can see, is a bright blue shimmery finish, inspired by Sonic The Hedgehog. Now, from a mask, personally I like to make my skin deeply cleansed, and brightened up. So I think this is why the Gravity Mud hadn’t previously been something I’d tried, as firming wasn’t high up on my agenda. Going to cut a little bit through the bullshit now, I’m not entirely sure how much firming a mask can really do. However, this does really brighten up the skin. My face looked glowy and renewed, but not really all that much firmer as such. With that in mind, I’d probably call this more of a brightening mask, and my skin looked detoxed, but I didn’t see anything all that much ‘firmer.’ Something to note! It doesn’t detract from the mask though, just don’t expect miracle results. So this is a peel off mask. No don’t worry it’s not like those gross ones made out of PVA glue that you see on Instagram (thank god) but it does work as a peel off mask. You can wipe it off with a warm flannel really easily, however, if peeling isn’t your thing or you have sensitive skin. I got some in my eyebrows, forgetting it was a peel off mask, and I wouldn’t recommend doing the same, ha! It washed out easily with the warm flannel, don’t worry. It’s so much fun to apply, and looks so cool as it’s drying this sparkly shimmery blue. It takes about 20 minutes to fully set properly, and you’ll feel it tighten up on your skin ready to peel. All in all, I think this mask is really cool. I’d definitely use it again, although more for a brightening/general mask need rather than for anything particularly firming as such. It worked really well as with all Glam Glow masks I’ve tried, and I’d recommend giving it a go! Let me know what you think in the comments below. Sorry about all the flattering photos in this post!

So Can Anyone Be A Full Time Blogger?

by zoe @ Zoe London

Photography & Edit: Juliette Carton The second part of the candid truth about full time blogging. I published this post here in January where I answered very truthfully and candidly your questions about full time blogging. It’s been one of my most popular posts, so I thought I’d do a part two with even more of your questions answered. I’ve been blogging full time since late 2013, and I’ve learned a lot both about myself and the industry along the way. If you want to read part one, you can check that out here. For now let’s get stuck in to part two! @tinabobeena22 – ‘Do you have a blogging schedule?’ So, I do have a content schedule for both YouTube and blogging, but naturally it changes almost every day. Things are moved back, other things pop up, and some stuff is crossed off because it’s simply not right, or too timely. As you will have noticed, I had a 6 week gap on this blog with no content, and well, things like that happen. When you try and balance YouTube with a blog, and also Instagram (which is like having a second blog/channel!) naturally gaps occur. So while yes I plan very much ahead, constantly scribble ideas and try to lock in dates as much as possible – don’t beat yourself up over this if it doesn’t go to plan. @thetallpoet – ‘How do you manage your time? I spend all my time on my blogging and I’m never able to turn myself off?!’ You never ever turn off. Never. I wish I could say I have weekends – I don’t, often weekends are worked harder than weekdays! I wish I could say I have a relaxing holiday – I’ve tried, but I never fully do as in my eyes *everything* is content, and well, you really never turn off. That is just part of having what I would truly consider a 24/7 job. I manage my time the best I can, but the reality is there really is no right or wrong answer to time management as a blogger. Some people work best in the morning, and some best in the evening. For me I just make a plan for each day every morning, and try to tick off the entire list, weaving content management around events, appointments and other life admin. Sometimes last minute things pop up, and you have to be relaxed in shifting plans around. For me I find the best way to manage my time is to do what works for me, and make a plan for the day I know I can achieve without beating myself up. @kathrynmonkcom – ‘What does your managment do for you? Do you need management to get connected with brands or is it more of an outsourcing of admin tasks?’ For me my management are at the cornerstone of my entire career, they are the rock and the behind the scenes support I need to be the best I can. They do all of my brand work, nothing that I do that is an ad is solo, all of it has gone via my management. They handle absolutely every single ad piece of content on all of my channels – and after years of not having that, I’d much rather have it this way. It’s really hard, very draining and difficult to outsource ad work and money yourself, and I know I would struggle to go back to doing that myself. The short answer is that I never had management before because I didn’t need it. I worked like a crazy lady behind the scenes to try and elevate my platform to get to the point where it needed management, and that’s where we’re at now. You don’t exclusively need management to get brand connections or brand work, but it’s easier, and much less stress on your shoulders to allow it to them. I am fundamentally a creator, an artist. By handing over the admin, the negotiation process and the outsourcing to them, I can focus all my time on creating and making the best art I can – which is competitive by itself in this current climate! @rhiannaoliviab – ‘How do you cope not being on a fixed income? It’s the one thing that makes me v anxious about taking my blog full time!’ This is one of the things where as a career it’s definitely not for everyone. I had several different jobs, retail and office based before going full time, and it takes a while to adjust to the unsteady income. I struggled at first, because I was quite poor, and didn’t have any money to save behind me for the times when nothing came in. Those times were really tough. Four years down the line and I manage my money well, having worked hard to create that reserve of money for when quiet months come in. Absolutely every single blogger is different. I don’t approach brands or outsource any of my income, mine comes from the brands who approach my management or book me to DJ. For me, January & February are deathly quiet months, but I’ve just had an extremely busy May, June into July with non stop brand work. That’s just my personal brand, and if you were to outsource work, you may see different results, but it’s an adjustment I can’t lie and say is easy to get used to. I had a hefty tax bill to pay in January, which luckily I had saved for and then some extra, but even four years in I cried a few times filled with worry in Jan and Feb after getting 0 income for the month. It’s tough. I think some people will struggle but you have to learn to accept it’s a new way of living and the results are rewarding. @LindyC_ – ‘Where do you find your inspiration for content? What number one piece of advice would you give to someone […]

Being Comfortable In My Own Skin

by zoe @ Zoe London

Photography: Corinne Cumming I was always told by those older than me that I would learn to not care what others thought. “I don’t think so, that’s just how I am.” Is how i’d reply every time. I always thought everything would bother me, everything would upset me and i’d spend my whole life worried about what others thought of me. I always thought that, and I never thought i’d see out of it. I was so hung up on how people saw me, how people spoke to me and caring too much about people who didn’t care about me. Look, i’m not one to be like – they were right – but I mean, yeah. They were right. I’m such a different person now to who I was in my early 20s. I often joke about how i’d love to be 23 again, but really? I’d hate it. I was always full of self doubt, about both my skills and how I looked – and these days i’m much freer of those. I was projecting myself on those around me. I think part of the reason why I was always full of self doubt was because I was projecting on the people I was surrounded by, constantly worried I had to be a certain way to fit in. Adapting how I really was to fit the ideal of someone I felt I should be, rather than who I wanted to be. Always worried about what people thought of me and if I was suddenly about to lose it all, I lived crippled by so many hang ups about my body, my face, myself. I’m not going to lie and say I think i’m perfect now, but i’ve come to terms with who I am and become comfortable in my own skin, not a skin I was pulling over to make a front. I don’t think being comfortable in your own skin is about loving every little bit of yourself, but beginning the journey to acceptance about how you are built and who you are. It’s not about worrying about hang ups, those are always going to happen, but it’s adapting a more positive mindset to remind yourself of your individual brilliance. It’s okay to make mistakes and accept weaknesses. It’s not a flaw of character trait to recognise when you’ve made a mistake, or becoming at peace with your weaknesses. Weaknesses is probably a bad word in the long run, as it’s negative connotations, but what it means is that no human is without flaws. No human has zero weaknesses. It’s not poor or at fault of your own to accept that, and it’s by no means a definition of your life and character traits. I struggled for years – probably since I was about six – with debilitating crippling insomnia. The day I accepted it was a weakness and not by fault of my own, was the day recovery truly began. I’m not perfect now and I still struggle with tiredness/mornings, but my improvement in fighting the losing battle against insomnia is up 110%, if not more. I’ve changed. The moment I accepted it was part of me was the day that turned around and a day of true realisation about my mind and spirit. I’m not asking you to write a list of everything you’re not good at, but instead of beating yourself up over something you can’t change, adapt a new attitude, begin to work around it and you too will grow past it, or at least learn to live happier. My insomnia was so far out of control I cried most nights in bed until 8am when dawn would rise over another sleepless night. The whole time I covered a skin over myself with a happy face and pretended I was okay. It’s not shameful to do this, but it’s potentially harmful in the long run to keep covering it up. It’s even less shameful to admit your flaws and weaknesses. Go from someone who covered this up most of her life to date. Maintain a positive mind and spirit. It’s far too easy to be negative about everything. I mean, everything. That’s the easy route, and it’s not the route to happiness. By constantly picking apart every bit of yourself instead of focussing on the good, you’ll only feel worse in the long run. As soon I saw the positive in every situation, I got better. I hit the lowest point I possibly could at one point in my life when I lost my home, my boyfriend cheated on me, and then I lost my job. I had no house, no money, and no one. And I was far away from my parents. In the end I had to move back home, and the humiliation I felt as a young person having to tell everyone what had happened could have absolutely broken me coupled with anxiety and fear about the future. However, I chose to see the positive. I was still alive, still here, and I have a family who care enough to take me back in. Those are positives. From then onward I vowed to see the positive in everything instead of the negative, and it changes everything about how you see the world and yourself. Sure, there are parts about my body that I hate, but the positive is that they are me, my character and my soul. Be a positive force, radiate positive energy and pass it on to others – and you’ll get it back. You fully get back out of life what you give out, and if you always give out negative vibes and negative thoughts, you’ll get them back. Adapt your spirit and soul to being positive and it hugely changes how you view yourself, leading to in turn being more comfortable in your own skin. Ignore media that makes you sad, don’t dwell on that person you compare yourself to all the time – you’re you and […]

korres lip butter - Zoe London


Zoe London

This is one of those things i’ve wanted to try for ages. So I got it, and then promptly spilt juice all over my bag and ruined the gorgeous box packaging it comes in. Classic Zo. It wasn’t even like, standard juice, it was like a full on lumpy smoothie. Really annoying because it made everything in my bag smell like a fruit plantation and all sticky! Gah. Anyway I managed to salvage it enough (and with a little help from my flash) but if you see any weird marks on the box, it’s juice, and nothing to do with Korres! I shouldn’t really have pointed it out I guess… Anyway the reason why I wanted to try the lip butter so much was that I have a Korres lipstick that was given to me when I guest blogged on Zuneta.com and one of it’s biggest positive attributes is how soft and nourishing it is. I figured if their lipstick was that soft, how great will the lip butter be? The one I have is in Mango, and it certainly does smell of mango. It smells a little bit superficial, but definitely mango enough to please me. It’s peachy red in colour and comes out with a slight tint to it. It’s quite thick actually, but applies smoothly. At the moment my favourite lip balm is the squeezy tube of Carmex, mainly because i’m not a big fan of things you have to dip your finger in, and most balms you dip your finger in are usually oily or leave a greasy film on the lips. I’m not a fan at all of Vaseline and I wanted to try this as an alternative and to try and sway my mind from my bad experiences with dippy balms. I’m still not 100% sold on tub balms but I do much prefer the consistency of this compared to the others i’ve tried. It isn’t greasy at all and it is just softening. When trying to describe it to a friend I said it was one of those ‘my lips but better’ products and I totally still stand by that. I can slap it on half asleep in the morning to soften my lips and the peachy red tint of the mango flavour compliments my lip tone really nicely. I think it’s a nice product, and it’s a lovely treat as it’s packaging is divine and it feels like a luxury balm, but I know i’ll still find myself reaching for the Carmex out of habit and mainly convenience. I do really love this product though and I feel determined to collect a few more (such a sucker for things with coherant packaging! I want, I want!). Korres lip butters retail at £6 each and can be found in some larger Debenhams, Oliver Bonas stores, www.zuneta.com and Liberty of London. What do you think of Korres? Do you have a lip butter? Do you prefer squeezy lip balms or dippy lip balms (all technical terms, of course!) Let me know, Love Zozo xxxxxx Disclaimer: This product was given to me as a gift, it wasn’t a PR sample.

The Independent

Christmas might be on the horizon but the winter months certainly do not bring comfort and joy in the lip department. The biting cold weather leaves many of us with dry, chapped lips that make us wince at the thought of mistletoe kisses. The good news is that the right lip balm can work wonders in a matter of hours, so there’s no need to leave your festive spirit dampened for long.

Lust For Life

by zoe @ Zoe London

Photography: George J Rockett Words & Edit: Zoe London We’re built to always bounce back.   Ugh, have you ever felt like you lost all motivation completely and all you can do is slug out on the sofa? Yup, me too. Actually, that was me just a couple of weeks ago. But i’ve bounced back and every single time I do, I feel renewed, refreshed, revitalised. I can never explain what causes it, but I really think there deeply is always something within us that makes us always bounce back and makes us remember why we’re here, and why we do what we do. It’s really natural and really really normal to feel low, and sad, and the more we talk about these points in our lives as well as the happier times, the more normal within society it will become. I really feel like we’re on the edge of a shift with attitude toward mental health. Something is definitely changing at the moment, more and more campaigns are being launched and more musicians, artists, celebrities are opening up and talking about the tough points we all go through. Suicide is still the biggest killer of men in our country and we can all do more to prevent this going forward. I spent some time at the weekend talking to musicians on the Reading Festival lineup, and every time I get the opportunity to talk to them, I always want to delve a little deeper than just scraping what’s on the skin of the album. I want to talk about them. Slowly but surely more men are talking to their friends, their families and their loved ones about the issues they face (and the women of course) and these musicians can elevate themselves up onto a platform to encourage more to be done. Using their voice, their influence and just giving others the comfort in knowing they are not alone is so powerful.   I think being a YouTuber is tricky on your mental health in a way people don’t realise. You know that horrible sinking feeling you get when you read one of your friends bitching about you on Facebook, or sending a sly shady tweet aimed at you? Imagine opening your comment box, logging in to twitter to hit notifications or opening your emails to find a flurry of hatred like that, every single day. That’s the reality for a lot of our YouTubers and I often find myself concerned for the lack of mental health help available. It’s worrying that the new generation of creators online just seem to get younger and younger, and aren’t taught about how living a life online and reaching incredible heights of fame, money and success at the age of 14 for example isn’t realistic. Not only is it dealing with the comedown of it crashing down in later years, but knowing they are being opened up to a flurry of online abuse is something I think we should all be mindful of. I don’t think for a minute the same people reading this blog are the same ones leaving nasty comments on videos, so that part of this isn’t aimed at you, but I think we’re all a little guilty of passively consuming media, or sitting and watching dramas unfold without actually sticking up for those who are on the receiving end. There’s definitely a witch hunt mentality that puts a lot of creators in a tricky place of losing motivation, and we could all do a little better to be kinder online. My mental health took a battering, but I found my passion again. I know for some people depression and sadness within their mental health is an ongoing battle to face, and I can’t talk much from experience because while of course I dip my toes into this arena i’ve never fully felt that way. I struggle with chronic illness which is absolutely debilitating and takes me to a horrible place every time it renders my body useless, but I do manage to pick myself back up out of it. A lust for life. I know we all have it, but for some people it’s a little harder to find. Let me talk you through ways I help dig mine back out when I feel the dark cloud approaching over my head.     I think the easiest thing is to focus straight away on your hobbies. Even when you feel so desperately sad, painting, drawing, writing, reading, blogging, YouTubing, sewing… fishing… I mean whatever your hobby is, that moment of clarity even if it’s just an hour or two away from the bed or the slug sofa can really lift you both mentally and physically. I find a quick photography session or just enveloping my mind into new ideas for videos really helps me. I also find time away from social media very therapeutic, and while resigned to my bed when the illness kicked in i’m limited on what I can do, switching my phone off (actually I just let it die) and watching my favourite TV show (Ugly Betty) for me constituted a good day. A happy day. Not every day has to be the biggest and best ever to be a happy day.   I think together we need to reach out to our favourite creators. Working from home, for yourself and in an industry where every bit of you is critiqued, as well as spending all day looking at yourself isn’t normal. From the outside, your favourite creator might seem like they have it all together, all packaged up in a lovely glossy edited photograph. Behind the scenes it may be a different story. Spread a little love, radiate positive energy, ask them how they are when you see them at conventions/gigs and reach out to them like you would a friend. We all have a lust for life in there, sometimes it just takes a little more digging on some days more than others. […]

Holiday Packing Part 1 – What To Take With You?

by Trinny @ Trinny London

My ideal holiday packing scenario would include a single suitcase. Some travel bag essentials are silver or gold flat sandals to go with everything, a beach towel / blanket / cover-up for sitting or laying, a sarong in a soft fabric that can be dressed up or down, a thin belt to turn a sarong into dress, a statement necklace to transform a beach Kaftan into an evening look, and a pair of sturdy flip-flops.

Download Festival 2017

by zoe @ Zoe London

Photography: George J Rockett & Zoe London / Edit: Zoe London Another June has almost passed us and that means it’s been another Download Festival. June is always a happy and exciting time for those in the rock community as it signals the start of festival season, with one of my all time favourites: Download Festival. I first went to Download when I was 15, so I have so much love for that hallowed Donington turf, and it’s always such a pleasure to go back. With a real mixed lineup on the bill and some epic headliner sets, George and I packed our bags and headed back to Derby with excitement. Mostly because George is notoriously famous for making a ridiculously incredible Download drive CD. No, really! Let’s start with the weekends weather. Honestly the weather at last year’s Download was so terrible it almost made me cry at one point. It was knee high mud, with no end in sight. Thankfully good karma came Download’s way and we had a totally dry year! YES! Look how many people stuck in their wellies the whole time though, ever the optimistic British, prepared for all weather right! Ha. We were so happy and everyone was in such good spirits, I know it’s nothing that can be helped living in England, but good weather days really bring out the best in everyone. The whole festival went off without a single hitch, and i’d honestly say hand on heart it was one of my favourite Download Festivals ever. So who did we see, then? Friday saw us arriving in the mid afternoon, and with a right rocky ol’ start as I realised I had left most of my life at home. Dear me. However we headed in to watch Four Year Strong, who played a great set. To be honest I don’t know much of their stuff, but George is a big fan, and I really enjoyed the energy in the tent. They had a really fun vibe about them and it was a joy to watch. Unfortunately after that we then had to head back offsite again to go try and do something about my lost contact lenses (such a fail) and we made it back in for System of a Down on the main stage. I feel like i’d waited my whole life to see SOAD, and it was high energy from the get go. Those guys have totally and utterly still got it, and brought the biggest dance party i’ve probably ever seen in the main stage crowd. They played all the hits; Toxicity, Chop Suey, Sugar, Bounce, B.Y.O.B, Question…. need I go on! I was reminded just how many hits they had. So gutted they didn’t play Shimmy, though!! Saturday weather and vibes were even better than the day before. Honestly after all the stress of Friday I was glad to see Saturday morning sunshine. Our day started with a bit of Pierce The Veil on the main stage, who are always good fun. The last time we saw them was at their own headline show, and the crowd was so young it kinda ruined it for me. In the festival atmosphere of the family and mixed Download crowd – it was better. I really like a lot of their tunes, and they sounded great. We then caught The One Hundred doing a secret smaller set on this tiny little stage, and it was my first time seeing them live too. They’re a really unusual genre of nu-metal meets rap rock, and I was impressed! The drummer Joe, used to be in a band with George (and also Hannah from Creeper!) so it was really nice for George to catch up with him and also get to see his new band. Speaking of George, he’d been waiting patiently all day for the highlight of his weekend, which just so happened to be Every Time I Die. I was a fan of ETID before I met George, but his love for them is really infectious and the passion has rubbed off on me, so I knew a lot more songs than I would have previously. There’s not many words you can use to easily describe an Every Time I Die set, so i’m just gonna go with: outrageous. They really should be on your list of bands to see live if they weren’t already! Biffy Fuckin’ Clyro. Ah man I just ADORE Biffy. I think i’ve seen them probably about 15 times in my lifetime, from tiny tiny shows in London, to a random show in a leisure centre (really) to a 200 cap venue in Switzerland, I love those Scottish lads. They have evolved brilliantly over time, making their music more accessible for all without losing that Biffy sparkle. It’s great to hear them played on Radio One, and what a huge victory for them to be headlining Download. I know there’s been so many chats as of late about new headliners for Download, a traditionally ‘old’ headliner festival, always looking for bands of the classic ire, but in my opinion Biffy are perfect to step up and take that slot for a young band. We have to look to the Download of the future and Biffy proved they could do it. With a firework display second to none, and an incredible setlist, even including Jaggy Snake, to me they sounded great. There were a few problems at the start during Living Is A Problem… and the crowd really wasn’t remotely big enough for what it should be – although they were up against Download favourite Rob Zombie at the same time – but in my opinion they did a great job, and they showed Download the young (by Download standards young) talent we have in the UK at the moment. We didn’t photograph my outfit on day one but here’s what I wore. I love outfit planning for Download because I can express the inner me a bit […]

Going Back To Glasses

by zoe @ Zoe London

Photography & Edit: Juliette Carton / Words: Zoe London I don’t have a good relationship with glasses. I remember the crushing feeling of being something like twelve/thirteen years old, already with a mouth full of braces, when the optician told me my eyes had worsened. Ugh, I thought. This meant one thing only: I needed glasses. Typical that I was still early in at secondary school, already filled with dread and anxiety at the new life ahead of me, worried already that I was too tall, too skinny, not right to fit in with the other kids. The cool kids. They would already think I was a dork, with all my braces and that, surely i’d never be accepted with glasses too? I hated it and I used to take them off when I didn’t need to at school, opting to walk around the corridors semi-blind rather than wear them and actually see. Teenage life is cruel, huh. Luckily the emo phase saved my fear of glasses. When Emo kicked off along with MySpace and I was more like fifteen years old, I suddenly didn’t feel so bad about my glasses anymore. My braces had just come off, and I’d managed to persuade mum that I needed new glasses (“no, really mum, I neeeeed them!”) and off we trotted down to the local opticians, where I was able to pick a pair of large black rimmed glasses. Perfect. Suddenly, at least for a while, glasses were cool again in the eyes of teenage me and I was happy to wear them. Flash forward five ish years of wearing them pretty much to death before I inevitably switched to contact lenses and never looked back. Until now. These are from the Kylie x Specsavers range. A few months ago Specsavers contacted me asking if I wanted to style up some of their latest frames for some instagram photos, and well, I thought “why not?” Having worn contact lenses relentlessly for about eight years or so eventually takes a toll on your eyes and it turned out they had taken a toll on mine. I’d been so bad at leaving them in for long days and nights, and i’m slowly but surely making my eyes really dry and increasing in prescription. Not good. I was advised to switch from contact lenses when I get home from being out, instead of sitting in them until they eventually went dry and began to hurt anyway. So with that in mind, I picked two different styles to wear over on instagram, and well, of course they quickly became part of my life. This was an ad project, and it’s definitely made a positive impact on my life. I do anyway only accept ad work that is stuff I genuinely believe in, but I felt while this one was connected to my eye health – it needed a follow up.     Glasses are totally cool now. It’s tough when you’re a kid and you’re told that one thing isn’t right, and you desperately want to fit in. That wonderful freedom of growing older and realising you don’t really care what anyone thinks anymore, is so validating and free that you realise it actually is cooler to not care, and to just be you. I think there’s such a stigma attached to glasses that they aren’t cool, when these Kylie frames prove otherwise. I’ve totally fallen in love with wearing them, and i’m so happy they are in my life!   Let me know what you think in the comments about my new glasses, and whether you had the same traumatising glasses childhood as me – trust me we can totally get over it and get back to glasses! By the way, this isn’t an ad i’m not disclosing, the two instagram posts were ads, but I felt this needed a follow up post as it was something important!

Korres Lip Butter: Review - A Beauty Junkie in London

Korres Lip Butter: Review - A Beauty Junkie in London


A Beauty Junkie in London

I got a bit of a bargain recently when I bought a Korres Guava Lip Butter in one of the lovely Cosmetic Candy‘s blog sales for only £3.00. It was brand new and totally untouched and came in a fabulous package along with the other bits I bought plus a lollipop (kept the boyfriend happy and distracted him from the fact I had bought more make-up) and best of all – a cosmetic candy badge. Yep, like a Blue Peter badge but for grown ups (who have an obsession with make-up). Anyway, onto the review. It took me a while to use this lip butter for the first time as it looked all smooth and lovely and I didn’t want to ‘spoil’ it by sticking my grubby mitts in (no, there’s no logic there at all) I guess I can only liken it to when it snows and everything looks and perfect and white – till a big car comes along and spoils it by turning it to sludge. Kinda similar… Anyway, when I got ‘stuck in’ I found a rather different texture to what I was expecting. I was expecting something similar to a standard lip balm, but instead …

Tips For Shooting Lookbook YouTube Videos

by zoe @ Zoe London

Photography: George J Rockett / Edit: Zoe London I adore shooting lookbook videos on YouTube, so here’s my top tips for shooting your own! I think probably my favourite thing to shoot for my YouTube channel are fashion videos. I love doing simple style it videos to full blown music video-esque lookbooks. I’m very aware however how difficult they are to plan and orchestrate, and as it’s such a passion of mine today I thought i’d share some advice on how we make our lookbooks come to life – from vision and concept to final live creation on YouTube. First lets take a look at the latest: Begin with planning the concept and idea. You need an idea to start the basis of your lookbook, whether it’s just the clothing, or the song, or the particular location. Start with that simple idea and make everything else flow around that first initial concept. For me it’s usually based on a loose idea, like ‘festival’ or ‘summer’ and from there I fine tune my ideas. Let’s go with the lookbook above ^, which was always destined to be a Summer Lookbook. I had already planned my travel to Los Angeles, as part of our holiday together. From there I began to fine tune the concept into an ‘old Hollywood revisited’ inspired in part by the revival of old Hollywood movies, a la La La Land. Coincidentally shot in LA, of course. I loved the old grain film and the deep saturated shots of La La Land, even though it was Los Angeles in the present day it felt vintage, it felt inspired by times gone by and I knew that was the concept I wanted to work on. Personally I think the key to a good, unique lookbook is an original concept. Watch art, movies, fashion adverts and draw your own original inspiration from what you see. Make it totally unique as best you can. Choose your location. I can’t tell you how many days of my life are spent gazing out of car windows, hastily grabbing map locations, or taking dodgy blurry photos of walls and buildings on my way to somewhere else. Always take note of your surroundings, and find beauty in what you have. I shot for example this lookbook here in a multi-storey car park. Even though you might feel annoyed you don’t live in the best location ever (I do forever curse myself that I don’t live in NYC or LA), you can always shoot something, and often the ugliest thing makes the prettiest backdrop when used with the right outfit. We’ve shot anywhere from disused car parks and old crumbling graffiti walls, to fields and school rugby pitches. Go out on a little inspiration drive or walk if you’re planning to shoot near you, and note down little things that catch your eye. If you’re travelling like I was above, research as much as humanly possible, both about how the location looks, the logistics of getting there as well as being able to shoot there. For example, this photo set and the video were shot at the Griffith Observatory in Hollywood, which is notoriously busy, so I used google and my own experience of prior visits to work out the best time to go – it just so happened to be 6pm on the day we shot this, where we were able to find corners and walls without people in the background. Plan your outfits in advance. You really don’t need to spend a lot of money on new clothes. Some of my favourite lookbooks are using old or vintage clothes, and showing how to re wear them and give them a little love. Of course you can however plan in advance and buy clothes in for the shoot. I tend to plan a few weeks in advance to allow delivery times and just incase anything doesn’t fit. I have quite an eclectic style so to be honest I tend to get my inspiration just from browsing stores or sat online perusing my favourite online stores. If you wanted to however, you could keep an eye on trends using Pinterest or Instagram, and get a feel for the kind of thing you wanted to shoot. For example you may wish to do a jeans lookbook, and you might have in mom jeans and skinny jeans that you already own, but to bring a new element and make the video more helpful overall, you may want to consider purchasing a different style of jeans. My rule is three to four outfits or more for a lookbook, and just the one outfit for an OOTD video – for me I call my OOTD videos The Style Diaries. All outfits are carefully planned out just like my editorial pieces in advance and it’s honestly the most fun! Make a full equipment list and get a feel for what vibe you’re after. Sometimes you can shoot a video accurately on an iPhone camera, and other times you will need the help of a GoPro, a drone, a little pocket cam… to be honest whatever you have at your disposal! Absolutely none of this is essential, by the way. If you only have a G7X, shoot on that – perfect. But if you have other cameras at your disposal or your friends do, consider trying something different.
